Week Three – Day 7
DAY OF CELEBRATION AND REST
We live in a day where people are overwhelmed with worry. We worry about our family, our health, our finances, our safety and many other things. The Bible is full of promises that God does not forsake those who belong to him. God does not forget his children. Jesus reminds us that God takes care of the flowers and the sparrows so he will certainly take care of us as well.
Those who refuse to know God and resist following him have a reason to worry. Make sure your righteousness is found in Jesus and not in yourself. The wicked worry, but the righteous trust because our security and our hope depends on our immovable, unconquerable, loving and holy God. The righteous know where to turn during times of trouble and trial. The righteous know the foundation their house rests upon is sure ground. The righteous know forgiveness is found in Jesus and sin is something to flee from rather than indulge in. Because of this, the house of the righteous will stand.
Father, establish my house in your righteousness. Help me to trust in your strength and love so that I would not face life with worry but with holy confidence. Help my family to walk in your righteousness, fleeing from sin, and loving what is good, pure, and right. I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
“The wicked are overthrown and are no more, but the house of the righteous stands firm.” Proverbs 12:7 NIV
